The day is here! Early Access for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, where you can shop fall pieces at discounted prices, begins today. Early Access allows Nordstrom Credit Card Holders to shop the sale early. Non-cardholders can browse the selection, but won’t be able to purchase until next Friday. If you aren’t already a cardholder, you can sign up for a Nordstrom Credit Card here.

The sale itself can be overwhelming: not only in the quantity of sale items but also in the publicizing of the event (especially in the blogging world). For a different take on the sale, I’m sharing my top 10 must-have items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with you today. I’ve selected some of the best deals, closet staples and pieces that I already own so you can add them to your closet this fall. A few of these items are already in my cart! For those interested in a more comprehensive look at the sale and more details about the sale itself, check out the Nordstrom Anniversary tab I’ve created here.

The best time to buy designer jeans

One of the things that I love about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is that it’s a great opportunity to stock up on designer jeans. Although I purchase trendier jeans throughout the year, I always save the investment purchases for this sale.  I have bought quite a few pairs of these investment jeans over the years and they are still looking great. There is definitely something to be said about the quality of the higher-end jeans. I have been wanting to try AG denim for a few years now, and this might just be the sale to snag these skinny jeans. Priced at $150 during the sale, they will back at their standard price of $225 post-sale. You can view the entire selection of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale jeans here.

Favorites that keep coming back

It’s always great to see some of last year’s sale favorites make a reappearance. Slightly updated, these items can be considered fall and winter closet staples. I have raved about this v-neck tunic (last seen here & here) for a few years now and I’m always excited to see what new colors they release each year. I already own this top in a few colors, but I will probably add another to my collection. Great to pair with jeans or even dress pants for work, but my favorite way to wear this top is with a blanket scarf. And you can’t beat the $28 price tag.

Another favorite that I have wrote about before are these workout leggings. They are by far my favorite, go-to legging. And not just for working out! Shown here in burgundy, they are also available in black. I own two pairs of the black: one for working out and one for dressing up. Regular price for these leggings is $54, but you can buy them now for $36. You can view the entire workout sale collection here.

Highly recommended purchases

One of my all-time favorite Nordstrom purchases (that’s really saying something) is probably this cozy robe. My husband will vouch that I live in this robe when I’m around the house. I’m actually wearing it right now as I’m writing this post at 4am! I own a few pieces from this brand (last seen here) and they are truly the most comfortable pieces of clothing I have ever owned. This robe is usually priced at $100, which might sound crazy but it really is worth every penny, but marked down to $74 during the sale!

Although the Tory Burch riding boot has been update slightly this year with the buckle around the ankle, these are my all-time favorite riding boots. If you have been following along for awhile, you may remember seeing these constantly in the fall. As with the designer jeans, this is a great opportunity to buy this classic riding boot for $200 less than the regular price! Yes, these boots are normally priced at $500 and during the sale you can buy them for $300! If you are interested in them, scoop them up fast. Like so many of the designer items, these won’t be around for long.

Thanks for stopping by and happy shopping, friends! You can view the entire Nordstrom Anniversary Early Access round-up by category here for a look at all my favorite wish list items. Have a great rest of the week and weekend. See you back here on Monday!
